Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest, Palmolive Welcome to Japanese Garden

Hi there! Today’s post is about these new Palmolive shower gels that I picked up at my local Superdrug store – Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest and Palmolive Welcome To Japanese Garden. These shower gels are limited editions. And to find out whether I should stock up, I gave them a try right away. 🙂

Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest is a super lovely shower gel. It smells warm and tropical with a touch of cocoa (maybe sandalwood as well). It’s not a pineapple shower gel at all – I doubt there’s even a hint of pineapple fragrance in it. However, I’m not unhappy because this shower gel is gorgeous!

Palmolive Welcome To Japanese Garden is a pure cherry blossom shower gel. I’m used to cherry blossom and vanilla fragrances, and because of this I think this shower gel is missing something. However, if you love the smell of pure cherry blossoms (I mean, who doesn’t?), you should give this shower gel a try. It’s very nice, I promise!

I think Palmolive did a great job with these shower gels. The fragrances are beautiful, and the creamy formula is great for dry skin. Palmolive Welcome To Madagascar Forest and Palmolive Welcome To Japanese Garden are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (special offer).

Palmolive Aroma Moments Shower Gels – Just Fabulous & So Luminous

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 new Palmolive shower gels which I picked up at my local Wilko store – Palmolive Aroma Moments Just Fabulous and Palmolive Aroma Moments So Luminous. These 2 shower gels contain oils which promise to leave your skin feeling soft. I’ve now tried these shower gels, and here’s what I think.

Palmolive Aroma Moments Just Fabulous with iris extract and avocado oil is a revelation. It smells of velvety iris petals, and it feels amazing on my skin. If you want a shower gel that feels luxuriously and that goes with Prada’s Infusion d’Iris fragrance, this is what you’re looking for! Great stuff, Palmolive!

Palmolive Aroma Moments So Luminous with peony extract and macadamia oil feels wonderful on my skin too. The fragrance is more nutty than floral. I like it a lot, but of these two shower gels, I prefer the iris and avocado one.

Palmolive Aroma Moments Just Fabulous and Palmolive Aroma Moments So Luminous are available as 250ml each. Prices vary depending on where you shop. I paid 90p each (special offer).

Palmolive So Tempting & Palmolive Be Sensual

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Palmolive limited edition shower gels that I picked up at Superdrug – Palmolive So Tempting with poppy and Palmolive Be Sensual with iris.

Palmolive So Tempting with poppy is extremely nice! If you love Flower by Kenzo, this is the shower gel you need to pick up. And if you don’t like Flower by Kenzo because you think it’s too sweet and too dense, this is still the shower gel you need to pick up! This poppy flower scented shower gel smells wonderfully floral, and it has an airy feel to it which makes it perfectly suitable for even the hottest summer days. Awesome stuff!

Palmolive So Sensual with iris is pretty awesome too. The iris fragrance is sweet, warm and natural. If you love Prada’s Infusion d’Iris, this is the shower gel to go with it!

To sum it up, these 2 Palmolive shower gels are sensational. I could kick myself for not trying them sooner! Palmolive So Tempting with poppy and Palmolive Be Sensual with iris are available as 250ml for about £2 each. I bought these shower gels for £1 each (Superdrug, half price offer).

Palmolive Aroma Moments So Vibrant & Feel Glamorous

Hi there! And Merry Christmas! A few months ago I reviewed 2 shower gels from Palmolive’s Aroma Moments collection. I really loved these 2 shower gels – so I thought I should try the other 2 shower gels as well. Now meet Palmolive Aroma Moments So Vibrant and Feel Glamorous.
Palmolive Vibrant Glamorous
Palmolive Aroma Moments So Vibrant with goji berries, ginger essential oil and hibiscus is simply marvellous. On the bottle it says “Glossy Touch” – they weren’t kidding. This shower gel feels amazing on my skin. I love it! And the fragrance is wonderful. It smells like… a warm summer morning. 100% dreamy!

Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Glamorous with blackberry, bourbon vanilla and dragon fruit is gorgeous! It’s an effective body scrub that smells… unbelievable! The fragrance is a sensationally delicious and sweet mix of red fruit jelly, tea, ice cream and berries. 100% yummy!

Palmolive Aroma Moments shower gels are available as 250ml for £2 – £3. However, the more reasonable retailers run promotions all the time, so you should be able to find these shower gels for £1 each at least every once in a while.

Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Good & So Sweet

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Palmolive shower gels that I picked up when they were brand-new. I wanted to try and review them asap – but that didn’t happen because I also wanted to get on top of all the toiletries that I’ve been hoarding… I was destined to fail!

Well, I’m now making an effort to use what I’ve already got (instead of stocking up). So I finally managed to try Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Good and So Sweet.
Palmolive Good Sweet
Palmolive Aroma Moments Feel Good wih frangipani, neroli and mango is gorgeous. It smells floral, fruity and tropical. I also love how soft and gentle the lather feels on my skin. Fantastic stuff!

Palmolive Aroma Moments So Sweet with rooibos, rose and almond has become one of my favourite shower gels. The fragrance is sweet and cuddly… it’s 100% dreamy! I’d describe it as a floral caramel tea fragrance. Pure awesomeness!

Palmolive Aroma Moments shower gels are available as 250ml for £2 – £3. However, the more reasonable retailers run promotions all the time, so you should be able to find these shower gels for £1 each at least every once in a while.

Palmolive Thermal Spa Shower Mineral Massage, Ocean Vitality

Hi there! Today’s post is about two Palmolive shower gels I picked up at my local Family Bargains store (R.I.P. Family Bargains) before it closed (and reopened as a Poundland store). Now meet Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage with Dead Sea Salt and Aloe Vera, and Palmolive Thermal Spa Ocean Vitality with Blue Algae and Marine Minerals.
Palmolive Thermal Spa
Palmolive Thermal Spa Mineral Massage with Dead Sea Salt and Aloe Vera is a gentle, yet effective, exfoliating shower gel that’s perfect for every day. I love the salty marine fragrance which goes well with the colour and the spa & sea salt theme. Very nice, refreshing, and definitely suitable for men as well! I think this shower gel has been repackaged and it’s now called “Feel The Massage“.

Palmolive Thermal Spa Ocean Vitality with Blue Algae and Marine Minerals is another lovely shower gel. Its fragrance falls into the ‘marine’ category as well. However, this one isn’t salty at all. It’s mild and it has a relaxing feel to it – the ocean theme really fits! Another good thing about this shower gel is that it’s not drying at all.

I really like these two shower gels. Mineral Massage wakes me up in the morning, while Ocean Vitality calms me down at night. Yes, I would definitely recommend these two shower gels. So if you come across them, buy them! These shower gels are 250ml, and I paid 99p each.

Empties – May 2016

Hi there! Last month’s empties post was really fun, so I collected this month’s empty stuff too. Now here’s what I used up in May 2016.

1 (no photo) 3 Superdrug Dead Sea Purifying Clay Masks & 3 Superdrug Fruit Sorbet Antioxidant Peel-Off Masks – I really love these face masks and I’ll repurchase them again. Sorry, there’s no photo but I didn’t want to keep the empty (and sticky) sachets.
Empties 052016 1
2 Herbal Essences Shimmering Colour Conditioner – this stuff is amazing! I rejoiced when Herbal Essences reintroduced two of their Rainforest Flowers shampoo and conditioner combos in 2013. Unfortunately these products were discontinued again. 😦 I don’t know why – the products are excellent! I have a few more back-up bottles and I’ll do a proper review soon. 🙂 In the meantime, check out my post about the Herbal Essences Classics products – if you’ve never tried them, you really should do it now because they’re the best shampoos and conditioners out there!

3 Classics Nail Polish Remover – I’ve been buying this nail polish remover for years. It’s effective. It doesn’t dry out my nails. It’s cheap (£1 for 400ml). It’s simply great! And this product is made by a UK-based company and it’s not tested on animals. Repurchase? Absolutely!

4 Superdrug Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Lotion – a really nice body lotion that smells lovely and moisturises my skin nicely. Good quality, good price. Repurchase? Yes!
Empties 052016 2
5 Olay Total Effects Radiance Enhancing Cream Wash – an amazing face wash! It exfoliates gently – but at the same time it’s creamy. It’s brilliant for dry skin! Too bad this product has been dicontinued.

6 L’Oréal Elvive Colour Protect Conditioner – one of the best conditioners out there, second only to Herbal Essences’ Classics conditioners. Repurchase? Yes! (In case you’re wondering what happened to the shampoo – as soon as I’ve used up a conditioner, my husband will finish the matching shampoo.)

7 Palmolive Oriental Beauty Sophisticated – a really nice shower gel, refreshing and not too harsh on dry skin. And it smells like a mix of tea and flowers. Nice! The product has been discontinued, so I can’t repurchase it. If it were still available, I’d buy it again.
Empties 052016 4
8 L’Eau Par Kenzo Ice Pour Femme (50ml) – a fresh summer fragrance (which I’ll review properly in a few days). This one was a limited edition from a few years ago. But I wouldn’t repurchase it if it were still available – because it no longer tickles my fancy.

9 Kirstie Allsopp Lansdowne Rose Shower Gel – a gentle and pleasant rose-scented shower gel. Perfect in combination with Flower Pharm’s Wild Rose body butter. If it weren’t discontinued, I’d probably buy it again.

10 Yung Haircare Deep Conditioner – this one’s a cheap product from a German drugstore. I bought it years ago (!) but left it untouched until a few months ago. It’s an okayish deep conditioner, nothing special. I wouldn’t repurchase it.
Empties 052016 3
11 Black eyeliner pencil – not sure which brand this is, but I liked this eyeliner pencil. Good quality. Comparable to Essence.

12 Superdrug Animal Mad Lip Balm – I used up one of these last month – and I’ve now used up another one. This lip balm was part of a limited edition set from last autumn so I can’t repurchase it.

13 Thierry Mugler Alien EDP sample – I love Thierry Mugler’s Alien. I’ve got a full size Alien EDP, but whenever there’s an Alien sample in a glossy mag, I’ll use it! Awesome stuff!

14 Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum – I have no idea how old the bottle was when I finally opened it. I used this serum a few years ago when it was introduced. But I never opened the second bottle – until a few months ago. I’ve now been using this serum on and off – and I actually still like it a lot. I’ll give the current version of the product a try and then I’ll report back. 🙂

15 Naturtint Shampoo & Naturtint Nutrideep Multiplier Protective Cream samples – I didn’t like these products. I’d probably use the shampoo if nothing else was available. But I wouldn’t use the protective cream again if you paid me. My last post explains it all…

16 NSPA Raspberry Body Butter – a rich body butter with the pleasant scent of juicy raspberries. I think this body butter smells a lot more natural than some of the considerably more expensive raspberry-scented body butters out there. And it’s only £3. Repurchase? Most likely – as soon as I crave raspberries again.

So this is what I emptied / used up in May 2016. I really enjoyed writing this post – so I’ll definitely make monthly empties a permanent feature. 🙂 Oh, and I’m really proud of myself for using up an eyeliner pencil before losing it. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! I hope June 2016 will be an awesome month for all of us.
